Re: WMEX (then and now)

I suspect that Glick had "Dickie" Richmond's phone number and that the
producer called him. Dickie sounds like a nice enough fellow--he said that
he is now 95 years old--but from postings here, I gather that his stinginess
was legendary and exceeded even that of his brother Maxwell, who, besides
being stingy, was apparently one of the most eccentric characters ever in a
business populated by eccentric characters. Mac Richmond was either
incredibly lucky or was a radio genious, however; I suspect the latter.
Although the interchange with Dickie on the show was cordial enough, my
distinct impression is that the WMEX staff thoroughly despised him because
he was both a tightwad and was clueless. Maybe someone who worked at WMEX in
the 50s or 60s can comment.
